You've got to be in it to win it, they say... OK, I didn't win with this, my very first entry per se, but it was a result nonetheless & gratefully received too. I was really delighted to receive a little recognition from such a fabulous panel of renowned & talented judges. Esp. given the relatively short time I've been pursuing this newfound dream, passion, career. I'd just bought a new HD video camera last year, so Christmas Time - Al' An' Om' was my first upload to YT; far too long with 4 choruses! BUT, this year hope to upload two shorter versions. AND perhaps release it officially for next Xmas! tphx
After two fabulous summer pub gigs, and my first wedding (2 hrs in idyllic surroundings), I'm ready for a few festivals, aren't you! Then join me for some of Plucky's Worthy Originals & Fab Covers :)
First up, Swan Fest (tomorrow) Sat 28th Jul. An hour of Plucky 4/5pm in the small village of Stewkley, raising funds for PTSD RESOLUTION. I'll be keeping an eye out for 'Britain's Favourite Landlord', though Al doesn't run The Swan Pub - YET! :D
Aug. 18th Legion of Rhythm, RB Legion, Newport Pagnell, MK (my 6th consecutive year) & my latest performance there to date: 22:15 - 22:45. Live Music Midday - Midnight! Raising money for Willen Hospice. It's always a great event with loads of talented musos; singers, songwriters & bands!
Finally, Fenny Poppers 2018 (Sun 19th 11-6 pm). I'm delighted to be asked back again; it's dynamic annual event nr Bletchley, MK. Fenny Stratford High Street is closed for Live Music Festival & Entertainment. Plucky's Main stage 'Originals': 11:20 - 11:40, followed by Plucky's Popular Covers 13:00 - 13:30 on the Acoustic stage, t'other end. It's more up-front-and-personal, and I love it.
So heed doon, grab a hay-bale, and enjoy some spicy summer RARE BREED Haggis! Cheers! tphx

Plucky's Channel now has more than 10 HD videos published on YouTube, and vision is growing for this medium, therefore I'm targeting more subscribers; 100+ by 2019. IT COULD BE YOU !! ;)
Recent uploads to Plucky's Worthy Originals: The Stingy Scotsman; Haggis Reggae; Alive In Me (1st garden performance - hear those sheep!); Black Matching Tie. WITH Folks Songs I Adore, to be published soon, recorded with a beautifully framed foreground spread.
AND THERE'S MORE... plenty more to follow; special covers, LIVE performances, Comedy & Innovative ideas. I don't want you to miss-out because Facebook prevented them being shared on your timeline. Once ALL 25 originals are uploaded, The Plucky Haggis aims to publish something monthly. I'd be delighted to have you. Cheers! tphx
3 videos uploaded to YouTube in April: Drovers' Roads; my 3rd, is a tribute to Highlander & local legend Cameron Ormiston, who's sister married a Newfie. Here, I'm wearing the sweater my father brought me, from a fabulous holiday he spent with his best friend Cam; meeting family & friends there!
Hurts To Say Goodbye; is Plucky's 1st attempt at songwriting, and mother's requested I play it at her funeral. It could equally apply to Cam given our loss, but just as he would've been 89, on 7th April, another old friend, Ronnie Gall, passed away aged 89 the very day I published it on 17 Apr.
Die Tryin' (drop the 'gees'); my 24th, was published & dedicated to my mother on her 78th birthday, 26 Apr. SHINDIG, song 25, is very different, but going down very well! There's plenty more to follow. To view, or subscribe: Plucky's YouTube Channel Cheers! tphx
